Cinavia protection

November 29th, 2011 by Fengtao 1507,235 views

This is the place where you can find all the relevant info on the new protection for audio-video called Cinavia. It is reported to be used for protection of movie from theaters and disc releases on DVD & Blu-ray. It consists of a multi-level watermark that is embedded in the audio track and, while being theoretically transparent(not-audible) for the listener, it is supposed to resist various transformations of the audio stream like re-compression, analog playback&record, re-sampling, pitch shift, etc. The base levels are analog, but on the top level there’s the watermark payload that contains some restrictions regarding the playback environment.

The protection has two elements (one cannot work without the other):

1. The watermark embedded in audio-video content.

2. Cinavia enabled player, that will refuse to play the content if it does not match the restrictions.


1. A movie copy made with a camcorder in a theater that contains Cinavia (THEATRICAL_NO_HOME_USE) watermark will stop playing within about 1 minute on a Playstation 3 and display a Message 1.

2. An unprotected (no AACS) Blu-ray backup of “The Losers” (US release) will mute the audio after about 20 minutes with Message 3 (for not coming from a TRUSTED_SOURCE).

We consider that it is useful for the users to know about discs that contain Cinavia protection and about players that have detectors for it.

Also, DVDFab and DVDFab Passkey provide information about original discs that have the watermark.

Twenty-fifth consumer electronics product developer licensed Cinavia as of 2010.

The bad news is Cinavia technology from Verance Corporation will become mandatory for all Blu-ray Disc players as of February 1, 2012.

There have been identified a couple of workarounds (listed in the order of usability):

1. Use the audio track from the DVD release of the same movie, particularily handy if it was a Blu&DVD Combo release.


  • Good quality (DVD audio track is probably an AC3, cannot compare to the lossless of a BD but still good, 5.1 channels)

  • Works on any Cinavia-enabled player, because the audio has no watermark (future proof).

  • So far, there are rather few movies with Cinavia on dvd; see the above table

  • Some Blu-ray releases are combo BD/DVD


  • Needs the DVD version as well (may be hard to source a ‘clean’, matching DVD).

  • Needs remuxing skills.

  • The DVD version may be a different mix, so the whole track may not be 100% in sync with Blu-ray release.

  • Some movies, such as Takers, has Cinavia watermark on both Blu-ray and DVD, making this workaround not applicable.

2. Embed DTS core in a PCM track, like in the DTS CDs. There is a special way in which DTS compressed can be stored in a WAV file, for example, and eventualy written on a CD-audio. A player such as VLC will see there is a DTS track inside and decode it correctly; others may not know that and will produce a hissing noise (static). So appart from embedding DTS sound in a PCM track, one absolutely needs an external AV-receiver to decode it.


  • Very good quality, the bitrate of the DTS track is higher than of a AC3 one, from a DVD.

  • Not detectable by the Cinavia enabled player if it is set to pass-through the audio to an external decoder. This way the information about the source of content is lost and the external decoder has no reason not to decode the audio.


  • Well, there could be a reason: if it does not know how to extract DTS from PCM. We tried this a while ago, but could not find an AV-receiver to cope with the DTS-in-PCM track, so we only mentioned it now to present you all the posibilities, even theoretical ones. This is more like: “what a nice idea, too bad I cannot use it”

3. Apparently there is another trick to be tried on a PS3 (only) and it needs you to select optical cable as output in Sound settings and checking all the sound formats (weird and dangerous! see the warning PS3 will display there), then also select the multiple output option. See this and this.


  • We could not manage to replicate it on our PS3.

  • Seems more like a bug in the Cinavia detector of PS3 and it has been reported that it has been patched in recent firmwares.

UPDATE: The following text has been edited to include the information about latest PS3 firmware.
The following applies to fw1.60 up to fw4.00 only, so if you want to benefit from this solution do not update your console!

The first solution to disable Cinavia came from DVDFab. It is a way of creating backups so they don’t trigger Cinavia. This solution is useful for PS3 users who are the most affected by Cinavia so far. What makes it a great solution is that the disc is much like the original (with menus), a protected backup so the Cinavia-enabled player will see it as trusted source and will play it back just like the original. People have made protected (isos) backups in the past, but those had the disadvantage that they only worked with the programs that made them; well, these protected backups are supposed to work on standalone players too.

Technical details: the discs created are called BDMV-REC as they are AACS protected recordable BDMV. Another solution would be AACS protected BDAV, like the ones produced by Japanese BD recorders.


  • a Playstation 3 console with a firmware version smaller or equal to 4.00!

  • original Blu-ray disc with Cinavia watermark. DVDFab and DVDFab Passkey will tell if you have such a disc

  • a BD-RE (recommended for initial tests) or BD-R disc to store the protected backup

  • a BD writer

  • DVDFab and updated writing software. DVDFab checks for it anyway


  • It is a solution to disable Cinavia, exactly as it is disabled for the original disc, due to (AACS) protection layer being active.

  • DVDFab does all the tricks involved to create such a protected backup at a push of a button.

  • The disc can preserve all the original features like menus, interactivity, BD-Live.

  • Broad firmware support: PS3 users with firmware from 1.60 and up to 4.00 can use BDMV-REC discs.

  • At any time, DVDFab or DVDFab Passkey can be used to remove the protection, if you need to.

  • This is kind of an official solution, because it involves support from AACS standards, the same standards that force adoption of Cinavia ;)


  • Due to the change in AACS LA licensing, starting with firmware 4.10, Playstation 3 have degraded the status of Protected Backups (BDMV-REC) to regular copies without the power to disable Cinavia. They are no more in the Trusted Source list.

  • BDMV-REC is not implemented by all players. BD Players implemented Blu-ray standards as they saw fit to market their products. Not all of them have implemented the standard that BDMV-REC is based on, AACS Recordable BDMV, fully. PS3, being one of the best players, did.

  • If not on PS3, we encourage users to check the playback support for “AACS protected recordable BDMV” either with BD Player support or with a BD-RE.

  • PC players support protected BDAV, but not BDMV-REC.

  • Cinavia is not removed, just disabled. Well, whatever works :) We tried to provide you with a solution asap and this was the quickest.

Rant: While there was no technical need, we implemented this solution so only original discs could be backed up with this method. Unfortunately, AACS LA didn’t seem to notice that or they were set not to allow people to backup their own, purchased, discs at any cost, including the change of licensing in the last minute, before the “big launch”, plus the change in code of PS3 and other players that had Cinavia implemented already.

We were planning to add support for the above-mentioned protected BDAV which would give a much broader adoption among BD Players, without having all the features: no menu, no interactivity, no BD-live, simply a Movie-only format. But since all AACS-protected Recordables have been degraded it does not make much sense now.

Last but not least, we are also working on a removal solution ;)

    If your disc is protected by Cinavia, DVDFab will detect it and handle it directly, and you need no second product, just copy the disc content into BDMV – REC disc. The copied disc shall be played on your device.

    hmmmm.. i made a strange discovery… ive been studying audio with this protection and i noticed everyone is looking for a embeded sound in the audio file, but i noticed that about every 20 seconds for about 1/30th of a second there is a missing gap of sound.. strange.. this occurs every 20 sec and every 3 gaps are a dif size then they repeat again. i think this may be the code your looking for. its not embedded sound.. its missing sound being read by the player and i bed the size indicates to the player what code to generate o.O

  • http://www.dvdfab.com DVDFab-Johnson

    Thanks for your valuable response about this cinavia protection, we will report to our devs for further testing.
    You can email us at service@dvdfab.com if you have advice or critics to make our DVDFab products much more up-to-date and leading product. Thanks for your kindly help and continuous support.

    Are you looking for a solution to make mkv-backups of Cienavia-protected blurays possible too?

  • JasonBond

    What if you have a video file already ripped from a disc with the cinavia protection on it. Will DVDfab take off the protection through encoding, or will it only work if you are the original ripper of the file from the disc?

  • http://www.dvdfab.com DVDFab-Johnson

    Currently, you may try to copy the Cinavia protected disc onto another disc with Blu-ray copy by creating BDMV – REC disc. Then you may try to rip the copied disc into MKV. We will keep updating to make it easier. You may pay close attention to our news and updates.

  • http://www.dvdfab.com DVDFab-Johnson

    Currently, DVDFab only works with the Cinavia protected Blu-ray discs.You may try to backup the disc by creating BDMV – REC blu-eay discs and the new disc shall have no protections and played well on your devices such as PS3.

    hmm. i bought dvd fab blu ray copy but i already upgraded my ps3 to 4.1 version. what do i do now?

  • Tony_online

    Its probably not the size of the gap, more likely its frequency modulated, i.e. the gap location may move by some milliseconds back and forth. This would make removal of the “gap” difficult because the gap cannot always be accurately and leaving even a small millisecond gap may be enough to transfer Cinavia info to the system. I used to have audio engineering experience a looong time ago. But I honestly cant see why the audio tech guys cant sort this out. I dont know enough about the whole cinavia system but this I do know. Its just a matter of time before someone somewhere finds a workaround and then Sony and all those that put money into this system will be licking their wounds

    I can’t recently fix the Cinavia Protection of the “Girl with Dragon Tattoo” watermark embedded in audio-video content …

    This may be a dumb idea. Not very technologically advanced here, but i get by OK. I use the DVD audio method, with BluRay video.
    I was wondering though, is there a way to isolate the low frequency sound in the BluRay soundtrack and eliminate it? There must be a way to access all the tracks that make up a movies soundtrack, and remove the one that causes Cinavia to react.

    Yes, DVD Fab Blu-ray Copy will help you to create BDMV-REC discs to make sure the disc content is fully copied to another disc.

  • Darage

    Yes, but what I have is movie bluray files architecture on my harddisk.
    (already unprotected but has the audio cinavia)
    Is it possible to emulate as a BR drive and try to burn to a real Bluray recorder using the trick you provide?

  • funkjunkie

    I’ve managed to bypass the cinavia protection by doing the following. It’s not the easiest, but it’s been successful for me. Using the Green Hornet as an example, I have the BR rip and a DVD rip. Using Premiere Pro, I take the Blu Ray video, remove the BR audio and replace it with the standard dvd audio. So far I’ve done 5 movies this way and its worked every time. I know it’s not the best method, but until then. Just make sure both files (BR and standard) are the same version of the movie being corrected.

  • greylion

    Has it been considered, that (once the encoding method is figured out) the watermark could be a value that, if run through a hashing algorithm, would yield a value that just fits within some range or solves some equation that has billions of (other) solutions?

    In other words, the watermark could be unique even for each release/edition of a movie, so looking for a recurring watermark across different releases/movies might be useless.

  • http://www.dvdfab.com DVDFab-Johnson

    Yes, DVDFab Blu-ray Copy will help you to copy the cinavia protected disc into BDMV-REC.

  • http://www.dvdfab.com DVDFab-Johnson

    You may try out DVDFab Blu-ray Copy with a Cinavia protected disc, just enable the option to create BDMV-REC disc.

  • Darage

    Is it possible to add in the new feature a possibility for “already ripped BR without encryption” the possibility to add Cinavia protection on a blank BR

    What I would like to know in other terms, If I have already unprotected folders on my harddrive with cinavia sound, is it possible to rebuild a BR with encryption in order to emulate my BR disc as original?

  • http://www.dvdfab.com DVDFab-Johnson

    Thank you very much for your suggestion, as you know Cinavia protection is not a technology developed by DVDFab working team. With DVDFab you can only remove that protection but you cant add this protection to videos.

    Sorry to say that, the current cinavia solution can only support firmware between 1.6 to 4.0.

  • R H

    Newbie questions… My PS3 system software version seems to be 3.15. Does that mean, that I’ve been “infected” with Cinavia? Is there any way to downgrade back to older firmware, which does not have it, or is it impossible? Where can I download firmware files? (website with instructions)

  • Blade Hunter MSA

    If Cinavia cannot be beaten, then what about creating some method into DVDFab, which will make it into “thinking” that the actual, original Blu-Ray disc is inserted? Even if it is only the backup copy inside the player. Just a thought.

  • SteveDobbs

    How about just roll back your firmware on your PSP.

    Or don’t use the PSP as your media player. Or if you are not a gamer do not buy PSP at all. Screw Sony.

  • SteveDobbs

    Of course it can be beaten, eventually. Worst case scenario is to mod the hardware to defeat the hardware detection of the signal.

    In the meantime, boycott buying any Bluray disc with Cinavia and just download a pirate rip instead for playback on a non-cinavia device. Hit them where it hurts – in the wallet.

  • zenculture

    What about the new av receivers such as onkyo 616 which has new firmware for cinavia, will that effect playing thru software players such as mpc-hc

  • zenculture

    have noticed av receivers are updating firmware to include cinavia I have been using a htpc to play all my dvd rips so no current problem with cinavia however will the firmware on the av receiver pick up the watermark and so mute the audio any thoughts

  • Ol_fenian

    Yeah, I think it’s time for a total Sony boycott.

  • Rich86

    The Sony blu-ray release “Take Shelter” is infected with cinavia. Avoid it.

  • http://www.dvdfab.com DVDFab-Johnson

    Nice idea, but it might be difficult to roll back the firmware if you are not the professional.

  • PLUG

    If this protection is transparent regardless of how the audio is copied, camcorder, direct etc, then the audio track itself will contain the inaudible parts to trigger the protection flag. Therefore, somewhere on an original Bluray/DVD must be a flag that tells the player this disc is legit. This must be common through the process, and common to all protected discs. If this flag can be located then I would imagine it could be inserted onto a copied disc, thus making the machine ignore the protection as it will believe it is legit. You must have found this flag and written DVDfab to add it to the copy, thus making the copy play. This flag must be on the audio track at the beginning, so should be able to be over layed onto the audio through muxing

  • PLUG

    To help the vast majority of people bypass cinavia can you include AVCHD in your next release. MKV is the standard that people grab HD in. You can easily convert this to AVCHD using MULTIAVCHD for example. If DVDFAB can have a back for AVCHD that will add the valid AACS certificate – problem solved

  • dadrian

  • PLUG

    Looks like Cinavia hangs around the 15khz. Does anyone know how a retail version tells the player it is legit, and if this info is common could it be muxed into an MKV?

  • Robert

    Add LG BP620 to the list of players not to purchase. What is so bad about this is that I purchased these discs to make a single back up copy which is all legit. Now the back ups won’t play on the LG BP620. So, I’m being punished retroactively even though I followed the rules. So, back to the store the BP620 went. Also, not purchasing another Cinavia disc.

  • Joe

    Seriously is there a fix in the works for this cinavia garbage……..



  • http://www.dvdfab.com DVDFab-Johnson

    If the player is built in with cinavia protection, its difficult to get the playback problems settled, you can only play the original disc but not the copied disc.

    I muxed a dvdrip audio onto the 720 mkv and it plays fine

  • http://www.facebook.com/adam.rose.96558 Adam Rose

    Find the video water mark that relates with the audio mark. Go deep into the video blank signal. Once it is found then it can be removed. That mark in the video is the que and when synced with the audio mark it triggers a signal to the audio circuit causing it to mute. I believe this will be fully hacked eventually. One other method is to mess around with players firmware scripts.

    hi minimog34, all bluray versions of amazing spider-man has cinavia on the english dts master track, however the english track dolby digital 5.1 from the dvd is not infected with cinavia, so you can demux this audio and add it on the bluray instead the dts master track, you can find tutorials how to do this on google keeping the original menus and extras, son if you can find online versions of this movies without cinavia probably the did this replacement, tip: i do this but i have to delayed this audio 1 sec because this was out of sync,

  • Anonymous

    If in the future you will be able to detect the sound data that triggers the protection it will be possible to decode only the few involved frames, remove the problematic sound and then replace that piece of audio so the only part reencoded is the frame with the problem and almost all the track is uncompressed without to give up all the extras, menus and stuff like that right? I think this is the only and best solution to defeat this protection, but maybe you have something better in mind

    Add Safety Not Guaranteed to the list. I burned an MP4 file to a DVD and played it on a Sony Blu Ray player. About 16 minutes into it, a message popped up saying something to the effect of content was unauthorized to play on this disk, disabling sound. However, what’s interesting is we put that MP4 onto a thumb drive and played it directly and it worked. No Cinvea interruption.

    Looper is listed above with an asterisk about releases not by Warner Bros., Sony Pictures, 20th Century Fox, Universal Studios or Disney. Does that mean the UK release by Entertainment One is not Cinavia protected?

    BDMV-REC that I created for “Men In Black 3” (which has “Cinavia” protection) didn’t
    work. First, I made a normal BD25 backup copy of the main movie (without using
    the BDMV option). My Blu Ray internal burner is an LG WH12LS39. In both my Blu
    Ray players, an LG BD550 and a Samsung BD-5100, the movie played fine for about
    25-30 minutes until the Cinavia Protection Message #3 popped up. I then successfully
    burned a BDMV-REC copy of the main movie on a BD25 disc. That BDMV-REC was not
    recognized by either of my Blu Ray players, so I bought a Sony BDP-S590. This
    is one of the only Blu Ray players that will recognize and play BDMVs. However,
    much to my surprise, I got the same Cinavia protection message #3 after about
    25 minutes of watching the movie. Why didn’t it work? How can I make a successful
    DVDFab backup copy of a movie with Cinavia ?

  • Lapetre

    I suggest the best thing to do is to wait for DVD FAB to come up with a successful removal solution for this virus Cinavia. They will get there, just takes some time as we all know it. Just like the BD+ and AACS a while back. In the mean time, you should pick a player with no Cinavia capability on it. There are quite a few out there…. Check out EBAY. Good luck.

  • Doktor McNasty

    I have an E5300 and yes it is cinavia infected. However I also have a Samsung 2011 smart TV which can play video over LAN and it is not cinavia infected. So I’ll start watching it on the E5300 and then when cinavia mutes the audio I just switch to watching that same file through the LAN on the smart TV

    I took wrath of the titans and remuxed a sound file of pink noise with very low volume, the Cinavia encoding is a silent bar every 20 secs for a millisecond or so, mixing a low lvl sound into the soundtrack does not remove Cinavia but cons your players into not recognising the Cinavia coding (or silence) Try it, what have you to lose except an hr, or easier, buy the original :)

    Hello everyone, firth of all, i apologize for my english.

    i was wondering..the Cinavia encoding is a silent bar every 20 secs for a millisecond or so… if we take the original audio line, file, whatever, and we copy this file and paste it over the original but… some miliseconds after or before it, you know as if we want to generate a rever efect but almost imperceptible, i mean not audible. could it works to make the bd player can not recognize de cinavia code? I don’t have the elements to try this test, but if enyone in DVD fab or in his house could, it would be great!!!

    I’ve been taking the Cinavia protected movies I’d like to backup and converting them to a MKV. Then I copy them onto a USB external hard drive that I’m using for Cinavia protected movies. I can play back the MKV on my Sony BD Player with no Cinavia prompt. I assume its because the Cinavia prompt is generated when the BD Player/PS3 checks the Disc for the data it needs to verify it is not a copy. Since there is no DVD or BD it has nothing to check against and keeps working. That’s an option for you all who aren’t too attached to your physical discs.

  • Zoohair Shaio

    None on Rise of the Guardians, Life of Pi. The rest is unknown

  • RaiderMax

    Until someone cracks the Cinavia code, which will hopefully be sooner than later, you can employ a method of playing protected movie files that have a DTS audio track on the PS3. I have successfully been doing this for about 2 years now and have never had a problem. It is not for everyone but here are the parameters: 1. You must stream the video/audio to the PS3 via PS3 Media Server software (free online) on a pc (wired Ethernet works much better than wireless). 2. You must run optical cable audio from the PS3 to a DTS capable receiver. 3. The movie file must have DTS audio.
    The reason this works, as mentioned above by DVDFab is that DTS audio that is embedded in a PCM stream does not trigger the Cinavia protection.
    Hopefully some will find this as a workaround for the time being. To all you hacker brains out there: What’s the hold up in cracking this bitch???? Can’t be that hard is it? :-) Cheers!

    Most tv’s have a pc port (VGA) these days and connect to your pc or laptop. Then you can have the audio directly to audio receiver and still play it with DTS sound if you use a coax (orange cable) from pc (if it has coax output) to audio receiver (3.5mm jack to red/white also works but no true DTS, I think.) Only blocks bluray players and PS3. That is my workaround, I’m just letting throwing it out there if some don’t know out there, they sell the VGA cable and aux cable in a package in stores to do this for 30 bucks.

    Use Samsung Blu ray players before 2012 they do not have Cinavia. Use models bd-c6500 has Wi-Fi and can do Netflix and Vudu. cd-6900 does 3d disc. bd-c5500 does not use Cinavia and can do Netflix and Vudu but is not wireless unless you buy an extra dongle. these models I suggest because the older models can only Netflix. at least the 4 models I mentioned have Internet@tv which give you like 50 apps to pick from. the 2012 and above Samsung players with cinavia now have “smarthub” the updated version of internet@tv so you can do redbox streaming that you cant do on older models. however if you have a smart tv. then just get any model Samsung. Go to the pawn shop find one for $50 and ask them to le you test it. bring an infected disk and test it before you by it. or go to Cash America pawn shop they let you return any item in 30 days.

    Eitherway, as stated before, it’s time to boycott all of Sony’s products. They are spending more time trying to dictate how we may use our purchased products, and less time on product quality.

    Removing the audio from the track and then using audacity or similar to add a small echo (reverb) to the track is enough to scramble the cinavia code. It’s possible to add the echo without adding it significantly enough to notice in the movie.

    Actually it’s software in the firmware that detects for Cinavia on Sony PS3. If you have the most recent firmware update then it will have Cinavia watermark detection. I believe that Sony may have goofed in the firmware and only scanned the ROM for Cinavia and not the USB port! Worth checking out! I don’t have a PS3 anymore as I sold it because of Cinavia!

    Who here knows about infrared technology (remote control) ? You know you can’t hear those signals and you can’t see those signals. Point the front of your remote into your digital camera such as your web cam, cellphone cam, video camera and press any button…you see flashes or a steady lit light. Now to hear the frequency put the remote up against an AM radio receiver and press any button on the remote…you hear sound. If you have actual electronic experience take the remote apart and attach a hobby speaker to the IR LED terminals and you hear very faint signal impulses very much like what you heard from the radio experiment. Now a filter can be made to make those signals inaudible to the human ear but the modulated impulses still exist. I’ve just showed you a scenario of how Cinavia works.

    Is the Cinavia watermark only isolated to movies released theatrically since 2009. Anyone test a older catalog title from 20th Century Fox like the 1963 version of “Cleopatra” being released in the U.S. on May 28th of 2013 or “Airheads” being issued by Starz/Anchor Bay on the same day.

    Anyone have issued with “Lawrence of Arabia” released in 1962 by Sony in 2012?

    I’m concerned with Cinavia affecting older pre-2009 catalog content, I’m not really a fan of movies released after 2009 anyway.

    I suspect the folks at DVDFab are not interested in solving Cinavia because defeating an audio watermark is a complete departure from their software.

    (original title) Bluray contains Cinavia!

    Go ahead and add “The Call (2013)”.. Its been confirmed that the bluray versions are protected.

  • http://www.dvdfab.com DVDFab-Johnson

    Its easy to test it with other player software to see whether it contains cinavia protection. You may use cyberlink power DVD or DVDFab media player to play the disc on your PC. If it contains Cinavia protection, there would be the warning on this.

  • http://www.dvdfab.com DVDFab-Johnson

    According to the user feedback of Amazon.com, this player can play the backed up cinavia protected discs.

    How is it a “Complete departure from their software”? The purpose of DVDFab is to allow you to put your originals away so you can play your backups. (Exp: This way when you kid or nephew/niece scratches the crap out of your backups you can make another, and not have to buy what you already paid for. or replace your misplaced backup, etc.) I don’t understand your logic of how this can not be of interest. It completely defeats the purpose of their software. Sorry, but I think you are off base and plain wrong with this statement.

  • Korbin

    Perhaps you should have posted “Canada” release on your original post then.

    Cinavia sounds similiar to that of embedded watermarking put on to backup copies made with 321 Studios DVDxCopy software. But watermarking done with DVDxCopy can’t be undone. Or can it with this software?

    DVDxCopy watermark anti-piracy scheme sounds like a precursor to Cinavia watermarking, is this true?

  • biggee

    just watched Olympus has fallen bluray and no cinavia


    Is there a way to get the older firmware from ps3 and re-impliment it over, or even delete the newest ps3 firmware so my backup movies i bought could work on my newer version of the PS3? Or is the firmware stored on a Bios type chip that cannot be flashed or reset to previous firmware?

    Worst piece of crap software I have ever seen. In no way does bluray copy deal with cinavia, About the only thing I can say is they are great at takeing your money, Telling you it works in order to get you to buy it, and then refuse to give you your money back after you figure out this POS software does NOT work. Thier e-mails to me about have flat told me it does not work, But they are working on it. Funny they do not mention that befor they grab your cash. I just pray enough people read this before they steal thier hard earned cash.

  • ccrashh

    Not sure if mentioned in this chain, nor if anyone is still following this topic…but I found that when Cinavia kicks in on the PS3, simply pause the movie, go to Date/Time settings and change the date (I move the year up by 1). Ok, so you have to do this every 20 minutes, but small fix for annoying issue.

  • Jayman

    i got that CINAVIA PROTECTION message when backing up KICK ASS 2 with DVDFAB latest update. Watched the entire movie without ANY interruptions on my XBOX360 and also on my PC windows 7/ULTIMATE 64bit. i have a PS3 and a 2nd blu ray player SAMSUNG and the CINAVIA PROTECTION always comes up. So those your options XBOX360 and on PC good to go!

  • sparkymarktoo

    Just a heads up. I burned Captain Phillips (2013) DVDRip XviD on my laptop and it works great on my Sony (soon to be returned) DVD Player. Both Blu Ray 1080p and 720p didn’t work (Cinavia) embedded. I hope this helps someone out.

  • sparkymarktoo

    That’s a great idea. I’d like to add to it though. Add an audio sound several hundred decibels higher than the human ear can hear! Make sure it is added to the top layer. It would hopefully work like a bandage over the missing audio gaps effectually nullifying Cinavia. Cheers!!

  • sparkymarktoo

    I’ve been told if you have another device, you can play it for @10 min, then play it in the ps3 for 20 min; play it in another device for 10 min. (the amount of time it takes to resetPS3) You’d have to switch @3 times to play the whole movie. Just an idea if you want to watch in blu ray. If not, go to kick ass torrents, download a DVDRip and convert it with AVStoDVD; burn it with IMG Burn. I did this with Captain Phillips (2013) after 2 failed attempts at 1080p and 720p blu ray. You may have to download some CODECS. I used K-Lite CODEC Pack Full. Good luck.

    Hello guys, I’ve followed this tread just to check what movies are protected and which not, however, I think I’ve just made the investment of the year. I bought a new TV with USB, nothing fanzy, it’s a Sony Bravia, the model isKDL-42W670A, and guess what… with a simple USB with your movies and series… voilà! good bye cinavia!! I can upload subtitles and another advantage is the lack od delay since using the PS3 i got some delay sometimes since I streamed from the PC. Anyway, it’s damn worth it, get a TV with USB stick and go tell Cinavia to f*** off !!

    sure…just extract the audio from the video,,,run Audacity and load the audio file from the video source then, go to ‘effect’ go to change pitch you will see percent change enter: -13 and simply press ‘OK’ export to desired audio output and simply to video.

  • Joseph

    Keep in mind to mux to video. negative 13…;)

  • davo76

    wow that worked great, I demuxed the mkv, used audacity, changed pitch to -13 percent and saved the file as an ac3 5.1ch 640bps. No need for DVD-Ranger Cinex HD. woo hoo

  • davo76

    why negative 13 work and no other number?

  • Joseph

    Sorry. Anything below negative 13 (-12 to -1) will result in the watermark surfacing again.

  • davo76

    I just listened to the audio of the movie and the sound goes a bit dull so not a great thing. Anything else I can do to make the sound better while removing cinavia?

  • Joseph

    well there’s another solution you can try out: using Audacity…change pitch negative 40 click ‘OK’ then change pitch again plus 56 click ‘Ok’ then export. Have fun.

  • davo76

    I tried that one and it made the sound a bit scratchie. Is there anything else beside audacity to remove cinavia?

  • Harry

    When you say load the audio file do you mean choose ‘Import’? Because when I try to do FileOpen It say’s it’s unrecognized and to try import raw data. This process takes half an hour and brings up additional settings to alter. Just wondering if you could expand upon this. Thanks.

    Yes, this is the truth. Not DVDFab and also not AnyDVD are interested into bring any solution for your guys.

    CinEx HD is using the save ground libs that DVDFab is using so they can easily add it to their software. But the new CinEx HD we offered them will also work with commandline.
